One Year Later

Better than expected in some ways. Far worse than we could have imagined in many others. It’s ok to feel hopeless and worried. How can we not?

We MUST let that reality inspire us rather than deter us.  A couple of weeks ago I saw a clip of DJT saying “resist” in a feminine voice and then laughing and winking. I don’t know about you but that’s enough to keep me engaged.

Complacency here is our enemy. Liberal or conservative just do the right thing.  My Liberal friends say I’m too conservative and my conservative friends say I’m too liberal. I take that as a sign that I’m on the right track. Take actions that you’re willing to defend after your time on this planet is over. “I deserve more” is  not a defense.  Nor is “They deserve less”.

I will #RESIST in a strong feminine voice regardless of being mocked by our president.  I will #RESIST as long as it takes. Long after DJTs Health, reputation and voice are deteriorated.

#UnitedWeStand

Below are some shots of me and Bub this time last year. This was one of the hardest days of our lives and we joined our fellow Americans in a state of shock, disbelief and sadness.  I have never been so proud and optimistic but so painfully sad and panicked at the same time. I actually had to stop marching at one point out of sheer emotional pain. #RESIST How do you respond to a kind, smart 15 year old who continues to ask “How did this happen?” Please install an Unsubscribe button for 2017 k?

One interesting thing about women is that the more you mock us, the harder we fight.

  1. The concept of unsubscribing from a year is a fascinating one. What would it be like if we could click “unsubscribe” and then exit the year while we ponder our options. Would it be like sipping on absinthe in some dusty post WWI European cafe? Or would it be like standing under a cold, noisy interstate highway bridge? I would be a lot less likely to click the button for the second one.

    1. I vote for the absinthe option. As someone obsessed with time travel stories I thought about that as I wrote the line. What would it mean? In theory it would just mean removing my subscription so I’m thinking absinthe or maybe this is a better tag line for my jager blog!
